PHP, which is a recursive initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most popular object-oriented programming languages that are available out there. Any website or app built with PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is activated, which makes the language really universal and it isn’t really that surprising that there are actually a couple of million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it enables you to develop a dynamic website with many different options. A PHP-based community web portal, for example, will show unique content to each user despite the fact that the page URL will remain the same. In comparison, HTML-based sites are static and the page content can be modified only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the version that was used whilst creating a particular website must be configured on the server in order for the site to behave properly.

PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Hosting

With our hosting, you will be able to choose the PHP version that will be enabled for your account, as we offer support for multiple versions. With just one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is launched in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the previous versions. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you’ve created through the years. Unlike a lot of other hosting vendors, we will not force you to update such sites, as a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s insecure as you may have modified its code to fix safety loopholes. For your convenience, you will even be able to pick a different version of PHP for each single website hosted in your shared hosting account.

PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

We are unwavering in our conviction that years spent setting up a website shouldn’t go down the tube, which means that in case you purchase a semi-dedicated server from our company, you will be able to use any script, irrespective of whether it’s new or old. In contrast with lots of web hosting vendors, we support several different PHP versions on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. Not only will you have the ability to enable the required version via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you will also have the option to select a different PHP version for each single website. The latter can be done simply by placing an .htaccess file inside the root directory of the given site. You can change the current version not only for a single site, but also for the account itself and the update will take effect in only a couple of minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be sure that you won’t ever encounter any site incompatibility difficulties.
